What is your type of style?

Everyone has a unique style, and I think it would be cool to talk about which ones you like, and talk about maybe how your style has progressed or changed?

For instance, I have a friend who boards, who rides very conservative, but when he decides to let loose, he surprises me every time, it's just really really fun to watch him, very original guy. He has been riding for a very long time, and he makes everything look easy, always in control, really nice flow. But like I said, it's always funny to watch him randomly pop a 3 off something you would never expect anyone to pop off, and then ride away like it was nothing. He's solid in the park, not amazing, not a noob, fun person to watch and ride with, easy to learn from too.

So what about you?

Trees. I can't stay on a trail to save my life. If I see an opening in the trees, I head in without a second thought. I always end up losing my wife along the way, but I just can't get over dropping into knee-deep powder and slicing through the woods. If you lose your momentum and slow down too much, you get stuck and eaten by bears, but that's half the fun!

I love just buttering and cruising around the mountain finding little hits. I used to be a total park rat, but now I find it more fun to be creative and find my own stuff to hit.

Hmm my style,

People say I can carve quite insanely at very high speeds. This goes for tree riding and alot. As far as jumps go, I usually get the biggest air that I can.

I basically stay out of the park and ride every single little pow slash and steep and chute and hike to line and i get to know the mountain really well. I can handle every condition other than ice.. I hate ice. I ride all day every day no matter the weather. Im way better at chop, trees and chutes than bombing groomers.

I'm more of a cautious rider, hate falling (working on getting over that), I progress slowly but solidly, I like to stomp tricks with consistency and finesse so its hard to start tackeling a new trick, I ride all through the mountain, focus on park but then ride switch over to the bunny slopes to meet some ladies then back to the park with occasional mellow blue runs.

Haven't really experienced real powder.

I'm pretty sloppy and a bit reckless. I like to really ride out of my comfort zone and because of this I fall a lot. I still manage to some never get injured. No regrets since I've progressed really fast. I am aiming towards becoming more of a all-mountain freestyle rider because I like how cool butters and ground spins look.

For myself I pretty much try to find "untouched" terrain. Anything that is fresh and hasn't been ridden. Even if it is a short dash in out of some trees, I'm game for it. Living in the Midwest; it is pretty much all groomed resorts around my area, nothing really big, and with not a tremendous amount of new snow, so I take to the fresh stuff any time I can get it. If the fresh stuff is falling I am def taking advantage. Most often I see skiers/boarders taking runs the same way almost every time. This repetition bores me. I enjoy thinking of new ways to hit runs differently. Being creative brings new experiences to the same runs at my local mountain. I haven't been very active in the park, and would not consider myself a freestyle rider, more so a freerider.

I'm usually out with my wife so we both try to help each other improve any chance we can. Example, we are starting to practice more switch riding etc. She's my best bud out on the slopes, and I wouldn't want to ride with anyone else.
